    Lost Gold

    I haven't seen any discussion on the show "Lost Gold" on the travel channel. What you all think. The guy that writes the books on treasure hunting was on there tonight. Can't re
    call his name but have seen some of his videos on this forum.

    Well, I haven't seen where they have actually found anything. They are basically following up on legends, and not sure how much time they are actually spending on them or the amount of research they are doing, but it's an interesting show.

    I've been watching it and I think they would of been better off sticking to one treasure,instead of jumping all over the place.

    Yes. That's all it is. And with a little Hollywood flair, they will all seem so iron-clad bullet-proof true.

    Yes. After all, who doesn't love a good treasure story ? I kind of wish they would do as the Science channel "What on Earth" does: They toss out an odd image that satellite image captures. Then get several nuts (archies, scientists, historians, etc...) to muse all sorts of conspiratorial cliff-hanger explanations. But then at the end: Presto, they show you the mundane ordinary innocuous explanation. But ... up till then ... you're like a little kid, buying into all sorts of alien or criminal explanations.

    That's what "Lost Gold" needs: A little bit of balanced comment.

    Yeah, it kind of gets me how they go to a place and detect for a few minutes and declare that nothing is there and go on with some other twist or lead. I would rather see a better effort from them. Seems they're only making tv shows and don't really care about the treasure.

    Haven't seen this one yet as it is not on free You Tube. But i know a little about it and the story has more holes than a sieve. Just about every single detail is bogus. My theory is some hunter went there years ago looking for Custer's soldier's gold and found nothing. So to finance his failed excursion he came up with the most phony, unbelievable story possible. And people bought it hook. line, and sinker. And then others copied it and added their own (swear words deleted).

    And after doing the research on this I think probably most treasure stories are the same damned thing--pure fiction to finance their failed attempts.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    The one I am in airs the 5th and 11th, for those who also missed it. The DVR set will most likely be available at a later date once the whole season airs.

    I might be on another someday. They use this site for folks in the know. There should be a few more members here that were on the other episodes.
